No entryway is complete without a mirror: It doesn’t matter if you live in a house or an apartment – it’s just one of those things everyone has to have. Whether you have a small or large space to work with, there are multiple ways to incorporate a mirror into your entryway. Above a cabinet, if you have space for it, is a great spot to hang a mirror. If you don’t have a space for a cabinet, don’t fear: You can still get stunning mirrors with a little shelf already built into it like the options below:

First off, mirrors are not just stylish, but they a super functional as well. Having a mirror in your entryway allows you to check yourself one final time before heading out. Not only that, but a mirror will help the space feel so much larger because of its ability to reflect light. Another reason why an entryway mirror is a necessity is that it adds another space to get ready in the apartment. Are your friends always getting ready for a night out at your place? Instead of overcrowding the bathroom, someone can easily get ready in your entryway. Functional yet stylish! A mirror is something you can invest a lot of money in or spend barely anything at all. I happened to buy my mirror at the dollar store across the street.
